Google's desire to see the world Mapped!

And with that in mind Google's Engineers from Bangalore, India have come with a unbelievable tool - "GOOGLE MAP MAKER". What this tool does is
allows you and your peers to add, edit and moderate most features you see on maps including roads, lakes, parks, points of interest, businesses, cities and localities. You will be able to trace many of these features using satellite images; as you trace, maps are immediately updated.

As of now, you can build maps in the countries of Cyprus, Iceland, Pakistan, Vietnam and the Caribbean nations of: Antigua & Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Grenada, Jamaica, Netherlands Antilles, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago
The power and utility of Google's Map Maker can be seen with this before and after images from cyclone ravaged Myanmar. Google had no data for Myanmar prior to the deadly cyclone hitting the area. With the help Map Maker now it has all the data. (via)
